All About Dental Fillings: What They Are, How They Work, And More


Dental fillings are a dental restoration treatment used to fix teeth that have been affected by decay. When tooth decay is left untreated, it can cause serious damage to the teeth. This is why dental fillings are so important – they can prevent further damage and restore the health of the teeth.

Dental fillings are made from a variety of materials, including gold, silver, composite resin, and porcelain. The type of dental filling that is used will depend on the location of the tooth decay and the severity of the damage. For example, dental fillings made from gold are often used for molars because they are very durable. Silver dental fillings are also quite strong, but they can be visible when you smile. Composite resin dental fillings are made to match the colour of your teeth, so they are less noticeable. Porcelain dental fillings are also less noticeable, but they may not be as strong as other types of dental fillings.

Dental fillings can last for many years, but they may eventually need to be replaced. This is because dental fillings can wear down over time and the tooth decay can return. If you have a dental filling, it is important to visit your dentist regularly for checkups to ensure that your dental filling is still in good condition.

If you think you may need a dental filling, or if you have any questions about this treatment, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist at Brush Floss & Smile. We will be able to assess the damage to your teeth and recommend the best treatment option for you.
